deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the outside. it is, frankly, easy to imagine that as the core for her return to public life and politics for hillary clinton at some point, but we shall see. the secretary also reflected today on how she is really leaving public life for the first time in a very long time. and she suggested that that might make her a little lonely. >> i am very proud to have been secretary of state. i will miss you. i will probably be dialing ops just to talk. >> dialing
clinton, the u.s. has been unwilling to lead. and this has left a huge vacuum on the world stage. in a recent assessment of secretary clinton's tenure. michael owe o'hanlon of the brookings institute wrote even an admirers such as myself must admit few big problems were soflted on her watch. few big vic trises achieved. secretary clinton's work at the state department should be judged on whether she has left america's foreign policy in stronger or weaker position. most think the future lies with china than the u.s. it's not all mrs. clinton's fault. but the fact is we just don't have the influence we used to have around the world from syria to mali, we have led from behind, so in effect the former secretary of state has helped manage our decline in what looks increasingly like a post american world. and that's the memo. now on to the top story. another view on this, joining us now from new york, fox news contributor julie ragenski and former advisor to frank lautenberg and president rosenberg a center left think tank and campaign advisor to president clinton. all right, simon, te
: the u.s.-led military coalition in afghanistan reported a drop in taliban attacks last year. they were wrong. according to a coalition spokesman, clerical errors led them to report a 7% drop in taliban attacks from 2011 to 2012 when 201 was exactly the same is a 2011, just as bad. u.s. and ally officials cited a drop in violence when defending the u.s. drawdown inia. now that argument is out the door. here's the news live at the pentagon. are we getting a straight answer how this happened? reporter: well, in essence, someone finally noticed that after reporting to congress last year that attacks by the taliban were down by 7%, a figure derived from month-to-month reports from the field about the number of enemy attacks, in fact u.s. and nato officials didn't include the figures gathered by the afghans themselves, leading to the following statements promenade meteorologist. >> violence levels had been trending downward in the last two years after five years of steady increases, beginning in 2006. reporter: the problem is the attacks weren't trending downward. they were exactly the same
. jennifer, what happened? >> well, with little fanfare, shep, u.s. and nate officials in afghanistan removed from their web site the month-to-month figure saying attacks by the taliban were down by 7% last year. there seemed to be a mistake. a mistake that led to administration officials making statements like this. >> violence levels have been trending downward in the last two years after five years of steady increases beginning in 2006. >> the problem is the attacks weren't trending downward. they were exactly the same as in 2011. an embarrassing admission by the pentagon that the the narrative about how the president's strategy in afghanistan was bearing fruit may have been misleading, shep. >> shepard: they must be making some case at the pentagon in their own defense. >> well, in essence, they blame the afghans. the afghan commanders supposedly forgot to submit their field reports about the attacks so the pentagon data was misleading. >> this is a regrettable error in our database systems that was discovered during a routine quality check. we are making the appropriate ajustments. in sp
